Iowa Lakes Community College to host 1st Annual Health Care Exploration Day March 9 

Iowa Lakes Community College will host the 1st Annual Health Care Exploration day on Friday, March 9.

Intermediary Connections Coordinator Autumn Larsen says, the event will give high school students an opportunity to explore careers in health care professions.  "This is on the Emmetsburg Campus.  We will have a speaker that will talk a little bit about what the future of Health Care is going to look like, as far as careers.  Students are going to be able to choose from a variety of sessions offered by our faculty members and some of our business community.  They can look at programs like nursing, surgical tech, medical assistant, athletic training, EMT, CNA, massage therapy and human services.  We're going to offer a lunch to the students as well as having a job fair there with some of the health care providers that might have an entry level position open that students could get their foot in the door before they get on their career path."

The event is free and open to High School Students, however registration is required.
